Lovely cottage right next to the sea at Looe. Clean and comfortable with all mod cons, towels and bed linen provided. Beautiful cream tea awaiting us on arrival. The owner Val checked in to make sure everything was OK. Enjoyed sitting outside the front of the cottage in the sunshine and watching the world go by. All local amenities and cafes, restaurants and pubs close by hand. Would definitely recommend and would stop again. Thank you very much. Mrs Nicola Martin and family.

We had an excellent stay. We just love the location and the proximity of shops & restaurants. There is everything in the cottage available for a nice stay, plus Val's cream tea on arrival is a lovely welcoming touch.

June 2017

Four of us had a lovely holiday at Nelsons cottage. We were just a few yards from the beach and all the facilities needed. A really nice cottage, it was well equipped with most of what would be needed The weather was awful to us but we made the most of visiting places in Cornwall that we wanted to go. Also when I had a slight accident with my ankle, Val the owner was so kind offering me all the help she could in lending me a wheelchair, walking aids and ice packs. She even text and visited me at the cottage a couple of times which was very much appreciated. Oh and I nearly forgot to mention the wonderful cream tea for four on our arrival. So very nice and thoughtful.

June 2017

We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was lovely, and situated perfect for the sea, harbour and shops and eating out restaurants and pubs. Toad Hall services excellent.

May 2017

Yes we enjoyed our stay.

March 2017

As usual it is a brilliant cottage, lovely owner, fantastic location. Can't praise it enough. Going again next year for sure.

February 2017

We had another lovely stay in Nelson's, perfect location and a lovely cottage. We had to go out and purchase some glasses as there were not enough suitable for drinking juice out of and there were no large glasses. The extractor fan control buttons need looking at as sometimes it would only work if you kept you fingers on the buttons.

Thank you very much for your useful feedback! Please rest assured we have now alerted the owner to the points that you raise, so she can take appropriate action. We note that you stay with us regularly - please bear in mind for future reference that we are always happy to help with any little problems which you might experience, and can easily arrange for a maintenance person to visit, or to supply more equipment if needed, during your stay. We hope to see you again soon.
